“I’m overly excited for Rylo and for his fans and the world to really get to see him on a larger platform,” Lil Baby added. “It’s been a long time coming with Rylo and even longer to go! We got work to do and money to get! Thank you to Motown/Capitol Music Group and Universal Music Group for trusting my process and I’m looking forward to a wonderful partnership!”

Baby previously explained why he’s confident in Rodriguez’s future success during an interview with XXL in 2021. He said of the artist: “One thing about Rylo, he reminds me so much of me. He doesn’t call me for anything—studio time, beats—he doesn’t call me for anything and he turns in the work and the work is always proper. So, anytime you have somebody who can do that on they own and handle they own business, you’re already like, 70 percent winning. Once they deliver the rest of the music on time, it’s just like, perfect. I can definitely see him up next. Only thing he gotta do is keep his formula and just keep putting out music and he got it.” Rodriguez signing with Glass Window Entertainment comes following the release of his latest project, Been One.
